In case you’ve been living under a rock with no internet connection, here’s a heads up: season 3 of HBO’s Game of Thrones premieres on Sunday.
Like everyone else, we’re excited. To show that excitement, like everyone else, we wanted to create an homage to the series. The fan culture around the fantasy series has already produced tributes ranging from maps to supercuts to beer. We knew we had our work cut out for us.
One of the themes that really struck us when exploring the GOT universe is that everybody on the show is doing business — whether in the traditional, capitalist sense (like the Spice King) or in the power plays within houses (like, well, just about everybody in every house). Applying lessons from these dealings has already been covered (along with lessons in parenting, weddings and life in general), so we decided to take it a step further. We set out to re-imagine these characters as modern businesspeople, answering the questions: What if we lived with these people today? Who would they be, what would they do, and how would we interact with them?
To do this, we equipped some of our favorite GOT characters with professional tools: business cards and Linkedin profiles.
Below, you’ll find the cards and profiles of some of our favorite characters (clicking on the profiles will enlarge them). Enjoy!
